Question about RCA HD50LPW164 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

My RCA M61WH185 now keeps shutting off and turning back on without any picture. If I leave it off a while it comes on with a picture for about 30 minutes then cycles through again with turning off and on with no picture. I might have heard a buzzing sound but I cannot be sure.

If you can solder, first look for poor solder connections. Resolder any connections that appear grainy or have rings. Please note that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged. The bottom line here is that either there are bad connections that are causing circuit characteristics changes or there are defective parts. Trying the resoldering is the easiest at this point. Update this with any symptom changes if the resoldering does not completely resolve the problem.

Television shuts off after 30-45 mins and won't turn back on

Check the solder connections around the flyback transformer for cold solder joints this model is nortorious for bad connection in the HV area. Also check and if need be replace the 5volt supply capacitor on this board also look for puffy tops on the capacitors, replace with same value and voltage ratings.

RCA D52W20 ( power works, but no picture.)

There are four bad capacitors on the sweep board in the power supply. Pretty hard to do yourself unless you have some experience.

My tv keeps cycling power like 3 times and wont' turn on

the rca itc222 is what i like to call a value set walmart sold a whole lot of these because usally it was the best price set. The thing with theses set are that the processor in these set shut these down if it detects a problem to keep from starting a fire or cause more damage. since it cycles then you no it just not a fuse or something simple. generally it comes down to a high voltage problem. horizontal ouput transistor or a flyback. there have been reports of bad capacitors in the power supply cp150 is one. in general average repair runs 250 to 400 in the shop i work for. depending on the problem if you have a bad crt and it is not under warrenty then repair of set turns into not really worth it. always unplug the set and leave unplug for 30 minutes this reset the processor(i have never seen this fix the problem but it is the first thing the customer can do. also notice any sounds smells coming from back of set
